  • Red Velvet Cake

    This recipe for red velvet cake is an amalgam of several recipes found online.

  • Chili

    This recipe is based heavily on one in The New Basics Cookbook. I like to describe it as “chili made by an Italian who’s had chili described to him, but never actually eaten any” (especially if you leave out the jalapeños).

  • Oh, the Irony

    A couple of times a week, I get an email newsletter from the city government with public announcements, updates on roadway construction, events being held in the city—that sort of thing.
